Time and Materials by Robert Hass, Failure by Philip Schultz for poetry.

Michael Chabon's The Yiddish Policemen's Union took home the California Book Award gold medal for fiction. The silver went to Khaled Hosseini's A Thousand Splendid
Suns. Special, out-of-category commendation for Robert Alter's translation of The Book of Psalms.

Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction 2008 Shortlist

Sarah Hall won Tiptree Award for The Carhullan Army (American title: Daughters of the North) It also won the 2007 John Llewellyn Rhys Prize for the best work of literature (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama) from Britain or the Commonwealth written by an author of 35 or under.

Nnedi's The Shadow Speaker was on the honors list for Tiptree. Yay!!! Nnedi has been winning a lot of recognition for that lovely book.
I was also kinda hoping Sylvia Kelso's Amberlight would be recognized by Tiptree. Maybe next year.
